Crop it 

Crop tops have become one of the hottest trends this year. Pair them either with trousers or jeans or style it with a stylised denim skirt. There are many ways to style your crop denim tops or jackets, just do what suits your silhouette and mood the best.

Dress it up

If dresses are your calling then you definitely need to look at the range of denim dresses that are up for grabs in the market. Available in an assortment of shapes and sizes, denim dresses are sure to make you fall more in love with this happening trend.

Dazzle in a Denim Blazer

This is yet another denim style trend that was pulled off with pizzazz by Kareena Kapoor Khan during the promotions of her recently released film Veere Di Wedding. Denim blazers are the in-thing and a definite must-have if you wish to strike a balance between corporate and chic street-style.

Double up

The best way to embrace the denim trend is to not shy away from wearing denim-on-denim. Popularly known as the Canadian Tuxedo, this double denim trend is a big thing this fashion season. Yeah, it’s a bit tricky to pull off but the key to making this trend work for you is to not go overboard with it and strike a perfect balance. We suggest throw an oversized denim jacket over high-waisted or ripped jeans and you are all set to make your denim-on-denim style statement.

Go Mini

Denim mini-skirt was a hit once upon a time and now the piece is back in full force with several flattering styles and is definitely a must-have.

Be Street-Smart

Swap out your traditional jeans for the all new denim sweatpants, denim drawstrings or street-smart joggers this fashion seasons. These streetwear denim styles are a rage among the jet-setting celebrities as they are not only comfortable but also extremely chic. Go grab your pair now, the baggier they are, the better they are. 

Drape the Denim

A denim saree by far is the best and the most unconventional denim trend that is ruling the fashion circuit. The denim saree trend, which was kickstarted by Indian designer Anubha Jain, and further popularised by fashionista Sonam Kapoor, has lent a whole new dimension to not just the traditional Indian wear but even the denim. Drape it in a traditional style or go funky and drape it with shirts or high waist denim trousers to make a unique denim style statement.

Deconstruct the Denim

So what to do with your old jeans while you adopt all these new denim trends? Well, simply deconstruct it – cut it, sew it, bleach it, colour it, and give your boring old pair of denim trouser a brand-new look. The deconstructed denim is a huge trend and can be easily produced through a DIY project. If DIY is not quite your thing then hit the market and pick up something that pleases you the most. From raw-hems, patchwork, huge pockets, obscurely placed rips, ruffles to embellished embroidery… there is lots to pick and choose from.
So gear up and make some stunning denim statements!
